red in deer lichen

Lookout for 2007 - lichen with red

The picture above is a detail of the following photo of white sandy ground covered in lichen and gopher apple plants (the bright green leaves). Notice the tiny red parts on the lichen? Locally this plant is called British soldiers, but it looks different from what I see on the web as Cladonia cristatella. I tentatively identify it as Cladonia leporina or Jester lichen. See large or extra large versions.

Here's another photo with similar plant from the Eastern Lake Trail in Point Washington forest. See a larger version. Deer lichen site 1.2.

Jester lichen?
